time are used to seeing. we're going to move down this way too, show you the beach, some joggers out here now. as we give you this report, about 15 miles out last night between midnight and 3:00 a.m., that's when they recorded the highest seas up to 18 feet high. now, today, this morning, they're back down to 11 fee. however, you heard reynolds talking about the rescues they had to make farther south down this coastline. well, the reason they didn't have to make any rescues here off the coast of massachusetts is because they have kept their beaches closed since friday and they've remained closed and off limits here until authorities make the decision to reopen them again. but because there is a continued concern over those rip currents, that's why they're telling swimmers to stay -- stay inside, stay at the hotels, enjoy themselves, and for the locals to just stay at home. boaters, same thing. it holds true until the tropical storm warning is lifted, and until they lift all of those restrictions. betty, back to you. >> glad to see the winds have died down a little. thank you, susan.
